Instructions for starting online version of orientation

 

Illinois Valley Community College is no longer able to enroll out-of-state students in online courses due to a 2010 regulation stemming from the Higher Education Opportunity Act.  The regulation requires that IVCC be licensed in the home states of all students residing outside of Illinois.  The College exists to serve the residents of our district and will channel all resources toward that purpose.
